Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Gets New Art and Video of New Blade Designed by Takeshi Nogami

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for Nintendo Switch will feature a rare blade designed by military manga and anime master Takeshi Nogami.

Monolith Software and Nintendo just released more assets of their upcoming JRPG Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on the game’s official Twitter account.

This time around we see a new rare blade named Newz. She’s a military blade with additional giant arms floating by her side. She can wield a sword with massive power.

Her military design should not surprise, as she was created by Takeshi Nogami, well known for his involvement in military anime and manga like Girls Und Panzer and Strike Witches.

Newz is voiced in Japanese by Yoko Hikasa, who previously lent her voice to Ryobi in the Senran Kagura series, Kyoko Kirigiri in Danganronpa, and everyone’s favorite Rias Gremory in High School DxD.

You can check the original artwork and video below. If you want to see more you can also check out more screenshots featuring the Argentum Trade Guild and its Boss, two characters designed by Tetsuya Nomura, one by Code Geass character designer Takahiro Kimura, and one by  Boogiepop character designer Kouji Ogatamore screenshots and a video from a few days ago, and another large batch from earlier last week. You can also watch some recent gameplay, and the latest trailer.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will launch worldwide exclusively for Nintendo Switch on December 1st.
